I tried to combine tree with sheep. I should have done eyes about to pop outor something.
Come for a fling
On this swing
Any tree poems?
Here’s a quick tree done without a reference:
Someone did an amazing doodlewash of a tree the other day. Sorry I’ve forgotten who it was. Anyway I do have a reference photo of a great tree so soon I shall try it. This will do for today. Blame too much fun at the weekend and the quiche I’ve said I’ll make for a school lunch leaving do.
Who knows what rubbish I’ll churn when I’ve got the kids at home. In some ways I might havemore time. No more school runs.
I need to carve out some playtime for these bargains I got on Saturday on the way to the movies. Yay for Michaels!
Put some color in your day!
So, does anyone know what these are called? Could it be a burl or a knot?
The photo could have been more macro but I didn’t think that was as interesting. I like the surrounding wood. It looks like a bowl or a plate from a long time ago.
Has anyone seen this marking on a tree?
Round and around
Protected at its borders
A plaque with no words

Have a great week![Top]
What a mix! What a great game yesterday. I am so grateful that the hockey arena had cable so I could watch the game.
That’s enough ink for today. Have a great day![Top]
When the leaves flap and bristle,
A cacophony of castanets,
the branches strain,
and the trunk pulls on the roots,
Stand tall and strong,
Remember to breathe.
Catherine Johnson, 2012.
Be like a tree.
Put down your roots in the warm earth.
Allow room for your branches to spread out.
Don’t fluster when the wind attacks and the leaves flutter.
